I worked at NIKE

Pros

Great Atmosphere
Great Uniform
Great Discount on nike products and Affiliated companies
Great Wages..What more can you ask for in a Job

Cons

Sometimes you get scheduled for days you request off, even if you requested in the time you were alotted. I guess this means bad management. And there was really no solution for the influx of customers we would get, it would just be huge battlefield especially during the weekends which made working pretty stressful and there is a lot of international customers so the language barrier could sometimes be a problem too

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spread the common/popular product around the floor so the associate that is working there doesnt feel overwhelmed since its usually in one area.

    I worked at NIKE

    Pros

    The Nike campus and community are second to none. People love working here. Work and home life balance is more achievable here than other companies - family time is encouraged. The employee gym is great - best in class. Love seeing major athletes on campus. Nike does care tremendously about its' people and makes the extra effort to hire back good people they may have previously had to lay off.

    Cons

    Too much documentation and not enough hands on 'doing' for some positions. Lots of positions are actually portions of jobs with many hand offs - kind of like whisper down the lane. Rarely does one work on something from concept to launch. Everyone is too replaceable. Many feel that way and move on quickly to something else just when they got the hang of their previous position.
    Weather here is worse than they tell you, so be prepared and bring rain boots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teams could be so much more efficient. Apparel could be coordinated with footwear and accessories to drive more sales and make consumers happier with ensemble looks. There is a lot of waste in terms of redundant resources due to walled silos between divisions and highly competitive managers that seem not wanting to share. People in the same buildings don't share much information at all - not even to join each others' holiday parties. There needs to be more team integration departments - maybe a team of experts knowledge bank that mentors. There are a few people who are patent happy - they don't check out information and feasibility before racing to file or are too quick to tag onto others' work for credit. Lengthy time lines can be frustrating to green light projects - mangers change multiple times during process and wheels need to be reinvented constantly.
